Summer Program

Our current program includes an annual, week long, overnight summer camp for up to 64 at-risk children, ages 8-11. The most important tenet of our summer camp program is that each camper is assigned one counselor for the duration of the week. This allows for a strong bond to develop between camper-counselor pairs. The campers greatly benefit from having this positive individual attention, which many do not get at home. Activities include an overnight camping trip, swimming, crafts, fishing, team building activities, capture the flag, campfires, archery, and canoeing.

In addition to these activities, daily classes focus on self-worth, self-awareness, and self-esteem. This combination helps campers:

  • Increase acceptance of others
  • Create a self image as a person of worth
  • Grow leadership qualities
  • Set and pursue positive goals
  • Improve the ability to handle stress
  • Develop problem solving and decision making skills
  • Establish the ability to trust

Year-Round Programs

After summer camp, counselors are encouraged to stay connected with their campers throughout the year and we help them do this with various interim events such as a winter bowling party and a spring picnic. We continue to build our program in order to offer more resources to the children throughout the year and after graduating from camp.
